Commercial Gym Floor Rolls, Mats and Tiles
Greatmats recycled rubber gym flooring is available in mats, rolls, and tiles in black and custom colors. Commercial rubber gym flooring is ideal for weight lifting floors, cardio, and cross fit training centers.
Gym Floor Tiles
For high quality tiles that are easy to install by one person over many flooring types, including short hair carpeting, consider a rubber gym floor tile. Interlocking rubber gym flooring tiles are highly versatile and come with color fleck options.
Straight edge rubber tiles can be 1 inch thick or thicker, delivering the most durable indoor option. Rubber paver tiles connect together using different interlocking systems and adhesives to create a stable surface. These puzzle style edges are popular for gym floors in 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch thicknesses.
Interlocking rubber flooring for gyms has a high density rating. It’s designed to last for years under taxing environments. Smaller interlocking rubber tiles are more manageable, especially when installing the flooring alone.To install the tiles, just line them up and push their seams together like puzzle pieces. The tiles connect securely and won’t pull apart while in use.
Gym Floor Mats
Rubber gym mats yield a versatile option that can be used in any gym. These products tend to be more affordable than an interlocking tile product of the same thickness. These mats come in a variety of different thicknesses. They’re often used in Olympic lifting areas because of the excellent shock absorption the thicker mats provide. We recommend 3/4 inch thick mats in these higher impact areas.
Rubber floor mats for gyms are both dense and heavy. A 3/4 inch thick 4×6 foot mat can weigh more than 90 pounds. Multiple people will need to help with the installation.
Rubber is the preferred free weights floor, as it will absorb shock and vibration and reduce noise from barbells dropping in racks on or the ground. Greatmats offers many rubber exercise mats new and ready for shipping.
Rubber Flooring Rolls
Commercial Gyms often use plyometric rubber rolls in areas where the workouts will include a lot of jumping. Plyometric rolled rubber is a lower density rubber. It has a little more cushion than traditional rolled rubber and is popular for use with plyometric exercises.
For weightlifting areas and gym floors that will see heavy use, we recommend 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch thick rubber gym flooring to adequately protect the subfloor. These thicker options provide better shock absorption.
Most CrossFit gyms opt for rolled rubber because it helps to absorb shock and is also highly durable. Additionally, rubber has anti fatigue properties and is slip resistant. It offers sound and thermal insulation, creating a more comfortable gym environment. The flooring is both firm and forgiving, so athletes don’t lose power during heavy lifts because the floor is too heavily cushioned.
Rolled rubber can be dry laid for simplicity. Should the installation cover more than 400 square feet, using a glue down or tape down installation is recommended.
